This course focuses on Modeling, quantification, and analysis of uncertainty by teaching random variables, simple random processes and their probability distributions, Markov processes, limit theorems, elements of statistical inference, and decision making under uncertainty. This course extends the discrete probability learned in the discrete math class. It focuses on actual applications, and places little emphasis on proofs. A problem set based on identifying tumors using MRI (Magnetic... Topic: probability

Abstract: This tutorial teaches dynamic multithreaded algorithms using a Cilk-like [11, 8, 10] model. The material was taught in the MIT undergraduate class 6.046 Introduction to Algorithms as two 80-minute lectures. The style of the lecture notes follows that of the textbook by Cormen, Leiserson, Rivest, and Stein , but the pseudocode from that textbook has been �Cilki�ed� to allow it to describe multithreaded algorithms. The �rst lecture teaches the basics behind multithreading,... Topics: Maths, Statistics and Probability, Probability, Mathematics Source: http://www.flooved.com/reader/1567
25 April 2009 (Kim and Lisa) "Prophesy, Probability, and Expert Opinion." Kim and Lisa use an excellent paper that Marshall Berman put together in 1989 to provide a slightly different slant on the nature of probability vs. opinion vs. prophesy. (Ever seen a rich prophet?) The regular features of Story of the Week, Trivia, Creation Corner (part of the main event), and Media Fumbles, are also included. Topics: ScienceWatch, NMSR, prophesy, probability
We are based in blues, and inspired by the writings of the Beat generation. We're also influenced heavily by the acid and pop music of the sixties. We grew up in a small town in Southeast Texas, once the stomping ground of such great bluesmen as Lightnin' Hopkins, T-Bone Walker, Pete Mayes, Blind Lemmon Jefferson, and many others. Their music has inspired us to bring something back to rock n' roll. These days there doesn't seem to be much honesty in popular music, and for that matter, quality.... Topic: The Probability Fields
